I was meandering around blog you do and found this lovely blog...
We have a small space in our current abode...Tim likes minimalist...I'm a bit more cluttered...
I'd love to do something like this in our place with one of the walls and all the beautiful pictures and frames we have...I'll let you know how I go...but for now this is pretty inspiration!

Clothing for Correspondence

Late last year I was reading Peppermint Magazine. And I came across these lovely ladies...Jane and Penny from clothing for correspondence. Their premise is if you need a letter written, they can write it for you, and in return you send them your hand me down clothes or accessories! I thought it was a great idea. I thought it was EVEN better when I actually had cause to use them. I contacted them a week ago and just received the letter they have written for me to send to an airline who will remain nameless at this time. It was a great letter, much better and creative than I could have come up with, and all it cost me was a couple of pieces of clothing that were going to the op shop anyway.
check them out and if you ever need a letter written, and don't quite have the words yourself... consider them!

winner winner chicken dinner!

Congratulations Janelle and Tammi!
So I had a false start with this draw...I left someone out! What a dill pickle! So I had to redraw!...the person I drew out first was my sister in law Anna...:) I'll bring something over in a couple of weeks Anna!
I decided I would draw 2 people after this...bit of fun! Thanks so much for joining in and following this little blog. I appreciate every comment! Here's to more fun and lots more posts!
Hope you all have a wonderful week...
And Janelle and Tammi, please email me your postal addresses and I'll get something into the post for you! :)

This photo was taken a bit over 20 years ago on grandparents day, when I was at pre-primary school.
that's my Nana and Pop...and me in the middle! My mum's mum and dad! Nana is here visiting us from Western Australia. It's wonderful to see her, I haven't seen her in about 18 months. She's witty, tells a good yarn, teases with love....and shows me where my mum gets her laugh from...the one that makes her whole body shake!
I'm so grateful for her, and for pop too who unfortunately couldn't make the trip this time. But maybe I'll be grateful for cheap tickets to Perth soon? ;)

flea market finds

 I found this sweet little dress last year at the vintage market that happens down the road from my house twice a month. We were ready to leave and thought we'd (myself and this lovely lady) check out the stalls in the car park...well it was a good idea! Cause I found this little number and she struck it lucky too!
It probably won't come out of the wardrobe for a while now because it's more a spring/ summer dress...but perhaps with tights and a warm cardy maybe?
For more delicious finds pop over to Sophie's place!

this week's gratefuls

I love when Saturday comes around and I get on my computer and start checking out all the lovely blogs out there...and then I remember Maxabella...oh yes and I start thinking of all the things I am grateful for this week...when I stop and think there are always so many things!
I am grateful for the young people I work with. They are super talented and it is great to remember what treasures and joys they are. Last night I went and watched a bunch of them in the school musical...the wizard of Oz! SO you could say I also got to do number 21 of my 27 @ 27! :) I love the wizard of Oz and haven't seen it for a long time and it was wonderful to hear all those beautiful songs!
I'm also grateful for the weekend...I am pooped!
AND for much so I am having a giveaway...head over here to enter...
and over here for more gratefuls
